St Stephen Neighbourhood Plan Referendum Toggle accordion

On Thursday 5 May 2022, a Neighbourhood Plan Referendum is being held in the St Stephen area. 

The question to be asked at the referendum is: 
‘Do you want St Albans City and District Council to use the Neighbourhood Plan for St Stephen to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area?’

If you live in the St Stephen Neighbourhood Plan area (St Stephen Parish Council area) and have a postal vote set up, you will be sent a separate postal vote pack for the Neighbourhood Planning Referendum. This means that you will receive two postal voting packs - one pack for the district council elections (with a white ballot paper) and one pack for the St Stephen Neighbourhood Planning Referendum (with a yellow ballot paper).

The specified documents related to the Neighbourhood Plan are available at: https://www.stalbans.gov.uk/neighbourhood-planning. Paper copies of the specified documents are also available to view at the St Albans City & District Council Offices, Civic Centre, St Peter’s Street, St Albans, Herts, AL1 3JE. Please call 01727 819565 or 01727 819550 if you wish to make an appointment to view the specified documents.

Information regarding the referendum can be found in the information statement below. 

The referendum result is below.

For further information, or to request a nomination pack, please contact Electoral Services on 01727 819565 / 819546 or elections@stalbans.gov.uk.

Who’s standing for election? Toggle accordion

Where can I find the results of the elections? Toggle accordion

Once the results have been declared, they will be published on our website. The results will also be displayed at: St Albans City & District Council Offices, Civic Centre, St Peters Street, St Albans, AL1 3JE.

Is voting in person safe? Toggle accordion

Polling stations will be safe places to vote. If you choose to vote in person, you can keep yourself and others safe by:

  • wearing a face covering
  • bringing your own pen or pencil
  • cleaning your hands when entering and leaving the polling station
  • keeping a safe distance

You should not attend the polling station if you have symptoms of Covid-19.

We will continue to follow the most up to date public health guidance as we prepare for the elections, and will update this page as more information and guidance becomes available.

What happens if I fall ill with Covid-19 or need to self-isolate at the last minute? Toggle accordion

If you are self-isolating or become unwell as a result of Covid-19 shortly before polling day, or on the day itself, you don’t need to miss out on your vote. You will be able to apply for an emergency proxy vote – where someone you trust can vote on your behalf. Details of how to apply (including the relevant application form) can be found under the "Emergency proxy vote" section of the Electoral Commission's "Apply to vote by proxy" webpage. Contact Electoral Services on elections@stalbans.gov.uk or 01727 819294 for further information.

Is it safer to vote by post, instead of going in person? Toggle accordion

Polling stations will be safe places to vote in May, but you can choose to apply to vote by post or by proxy instead if you wish. See the key deadlines table above for the relevant deadline dates. Please visit our Electoral register and voting page for details of how to apply to vote by post or proxy. 

Why are some details pre-printed on my postal voting statement? Toggle accordion

The first two digits of your year of birth are pre-printed on your postal voting statement. The digits are pre-populated in the first two boxes of the year of birth based on your date of birth. This is done to assist electors to complete this section of the postal voting statement correctly.

Why have I received two postal vote packs? Toggle accordion

If you live in the St Stephen Neighbourhood Plan area (St Stephen Parish Council area) and have a postal vote set up, you will be sent a separate postal vote pack for the Neighbourhood Planning Referendum. This means that you will receive two postal voting packs - one pack for the district council elections (with a white ballot paper) and one pack for the St Stephen Neighbourhood Planning Referendum (with a yellow ballot paper).
